Theatrical Release: July 22, 1997
DVD Release: July 22, 1997
From his seat on a commuter train, a respected but downtrodden Tokyo office worker espies a beautiful woman in the window of a dance studio. Mesmerized, he signs up for ballroom dance instruction at the school, despite the threat of losing face by participating in such an “undignified” public spectable. However, he soon discovers that he has a natural aptitude–and a natural love–for dancing, much to the dismay of his perplexed wife and daughter.
Dissatisfied with his comfortable life, a married businessman takes up ballroom dancing in order to meet a young woman he has seen from a distance. The film is about a man finding his way. No adultery is committed and the marriage is ultimately strengthened.
